The Book of Virtues: Responsibility
When Annie's mother presents her with a new bicycle to deliver cakes, she
promises to take care of it. Instead, she wrecks it-along with the cakes-after
impulsively accepting the challenge of a race.
Book of Virtues: Honesty
To escape blame for breaking his father's camera, Zach
concocts a story - instead of telling the truth - prompting his friends at
Plato's Peak to help him "focus" on the importance of honesty.
Promises kept and promises broken are explored.
Book of Virtues: Compassion
When Zach watches a dreadful fire destroy an immigrant
family's home, his indifference about getting involved slowly wanes, as Plato
recounts inspiring stories of compassion. "The Good Samaritan" - who
renounces prejudice in favor of saving a life; the selflessness of a young girl
in "The Legend of the Dipper;" the tale of "Androcles and the
Lion," a demonstration in compassion given and kindness returned; and the
poem "The New Colossus," all help Zach grasp the significance of
reaching out to those in need.
Book of Virtues: Generosity
When Zach and Annie decide to deliver food to a homeless
shelter, they get caught up in planning their rewards. Plato helps them
discover the true spirit of giving in "Rocking Horse Land" - about a
boy who learns the value of bringing joy to another; "Old Mr Rabbit's
Thanksgiving Dinner" - where a rabbit's bounty gives wonderful meaning to
the holiday; the "Gift of the Magi" - in which a couple's sacrificial
gifts reflect their love; and the purpose of a day well spent, in the poem
"Count That Day Lost."
